           The Human Body was designed to walk, run, or stop; it wasn’t built for coasting.” C Hightower

          

Life is not a journey of coasting to the grave with the intention of arriving in a pretty and well

     preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways thoroughly used up, totally worn out and proclaiming

                                                                                   WOW WHAT A RIDE!!!                         -Hunter S. Thompson, "Gonzo"


“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”   -Friedrich Nietzsche


...frequent disputes arose in the Ball Room, by different persons performing the Figure differently from others, and each persisting in his own opinion, and declaring his manner of performing the Figure to be correct.

- Thomas Wilson, The Complete System of English Country Dancing, 1815
